A few photos and a list of the technical specifications of the HTC Desire 626 have been leaked on Twitter.

The phone is probably a successor to last year’s HTC Desire 616.

The 626 sports a 5″ HD 720P Display, and is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek 6572 Chipset with an Octa Core MSM8916 processor clocked at  1.7GHz, and 2 GB of RAM. The chipset probably has  a Mali-T760 GPU. The HTC Desire 626 will run on Android 4.4, out of the box, but will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Though there are a couple of similarities (Display size, resolution, battery) between the two Desire 616 and the 626, the newer one has quite a few upgrades in its internals (more internal storage, better cameras).

The Desire 626 has Dual speakers on the front. The rear snapper is a 13 Megapixel lens, and the front camera is a 5 Megapixel shooter. It has 16 GB of internal storage. It is a Dual SIM device which supports 4G LTE (as seen in the images: 4G symbol on the back, and a 4G symbol on the status bar). It packs a 2,000 mAh battery.

The leak also suggests that a cheaper variant with a Quad Core 1.2GHz processor, and 1 GB of RAM will also be released.

Given that the HTC Desire 616 was launched for Rs.16,900 a year ago, we can expect the HTC Desire 626 to carry a similar price tag.
